    Thermoking popped up all over the map by name, but when I look for carrier I get ac repair businesses.

    I am 90% sure I am buying a carrier x2100 so I need to know where the shops are, but I can't find even 1. Help LOL

    If you don't have the 'Trucker Path' app on your phone you should for many reasons. If you did you did you could select 'carrier' from the map menu and you'd have the info you're looking for.

    The reason your Google search didn't work out so well for you is that Carrier Trailer Reefers are just a small portion of their business. Carrier is huge worldwide selling residential and commercial heating and ac units (HVAC) where Themoking does not.

    TK will fix Carriers. WW Williams has places here and there. Search carrier Carrier Transicold and weed out the ones for home stuff. Also google trailer repair and maybe call them and ask if they know of a reefer place or if they do it. The best thing you can do to save money is to get your PM done twice a year like it’s your religion wherever you make your home port and try to use a shop you can use regularly (you need to find a good one) that’s quick on the return for service and keeps files on it. New belts every PM, seals checked, freon checked, oil change, etc twice a year is necessary for heavy use reefers. There’s only so much that can go wrong so limit what does on the road as much as you can. Seals and belts can usually wait but gearboxes, sensors, alternator, and etc is always a must ASAP repair. I carry a set of jumper cables in case my alternator (replaced already) or battery take a dump just to ensure I get the load off and the temp it’s supposed to be at and I’ve done that twice in two different reefers.
